British royal Prince Charles is set to take lover CAMILLA PARKER-BOWLES on her first overseas visit - to the romantic areas of India.

The controversial couple are proposing the idea of the trip as their debut tour, especially as Camilla has pals in northern India she would love to meet up with again.

Parker-Bowles's spokesperson says, "Camilla has friends in the north of India, where the Prince will stay during the trip, and it is possible that she may stay there.

"She has been there before and it is being looked into at the moment."

However, even if Camilla is permitted to accompany the prince, it is doubtful she will be anything other than a background figure while he carries out his official duties.
